New Telephone System: What Telephone Do You Use May 31? [Updated!]

This news item expired June 29, 2013. It may contain out-of-date information.

If you have two telephones sitting on your desk, soon the new Aastra model will be the only one that works. Please Set Up Your Aastra Telephone and Features as soon as you receive your new telephone, and begin using it as much as possible.

The following buildings will be converted to the new Aastra telephone on May 31:

  • Atanasoff Hall
  • Bessey Hall
  • Catt Hall
  • College of Design
  • Coover Hall
  • Durham Center
  • Horticulture Hall
  • Hub
  • Human Nutritional Sciences Building
  • Jacobson Athletic Building
  • LeBaron Hall
  • MacKay Hall
  • Morrill Hall
  • Palmer Building
  • Parks Library
  • Snedecor Hall
  • Sweeney Hall
  • Town Engineering Building

Please see the Building Schedule to determine the date on which your new telephone will be installed (if it has not yet been) and the conversion date (the date you will need to be ready to use your Aastra telephone only). At any time after your building's scheduled conversion date, the installation crew will return to retrieve your old telephone.

Watch for emails from your department voice/data coordinator with specific details about what to expect. You can find full setup instructions on the how to Set Up Your Aastra Telephone and Features.
